Gerald, Are you going to do the viewing window on
the inside grate??? I take it that you will not be
using the front door..I am not on my 1G but would
love to put a viewing window in but trying to
figure out how to do it and keep it
clean..Congratulations on your Gates... Mine came
out of operation at KOPY in Corpus Christi, TX
last year. They are now having more trouble with
their new solid state then they ever had with the
BC1G... They have had more down time on the Solid
State in one year then they had the whole time
since 1962 with the Gates  LOL... Ohhh the love of
transistors...

To all who responded, commented, offered help, and
laughed. On Wednesday 
afternoon I went to the station with two of my
men. There I met Mike 
Holderfield N4RMS who is the chief engineer. We
spent about two hours 
removing all the heavy iron and loading it in my
covered  pickup. Some 
one had marked all the leads with Brady wire
markers so all we had to do 
is remove them. On Thursday we went back with a
fourth man and a trailer 
and loaded the cabinet and brought it home. This
rig has been properly 
maintained throughout its years of service and
will require little to 
get it on the air. The output configuration is
already a pi-L net with 
an adjustable 2nd harmonic filter connected
between the two sections to 
ground. Converting this to ham service will not be
a problem. A complete 
set of manuals was included. Since I have a new
T368 exciter I am even 
looking to use that and bandswitching the whole
thing to a least 160 to 
40. I have many projects to work on but this one
some how got to the top 
of the list. Since the tubes are mounted right
behind the front panel a  
viewing window will be installed and one more high
powered AM rig will 
"Glow in the Dark" Thanks to Charles N4FA, and
Mike N4RMS.
